FREQUENT ASKED QUESTIONS

RESOLVE YOUR QUESTIONS

My results show a different physical trait from reality. Why?

As with complex diseases, traits are not only determined by a genetic factor, which is the information we analyze at tellmeGen, but are also regulated by an environmental factor that can have a strong impact on the presence of that trait. In addition, with current knowledge of genetics, we always talk about probability. For example, having genetic variants associated with a light eye color will increase the probability of having a light eye color, but such results are not definitive.
